The 48th Annual Jerome Historic Home and Building Tour takes place May 18-19, 2013 in Jerome, Arizona. Tickets will be sold on Main Street, right in the center of town at the old firehouse. The cost is $15 for adults and $8 for children. The first tickets are sold at 9:00AM and the final tickets each day will be sold at 3:00PM, leaving two hours for latecomers to get through the tour by 5:00PM.
In total, seven homes and buildings are on the tour. There are lots of steps so this is not handicapped accessible and no pets or strollers allowed. The final stop at Spook Hall will include cookies and lemonade plus a photo display of historic photos as well as performances by Mingus Union High School Students. As a bonus, there will be a preview of a film by local historian Peggy Hicks, recounting the story of The Cuban Queen Bordello.

Gypsy Wagon at The Hillside House
